STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut high school principal and assistant principal have been charged with failing to report a sexual relationship between a teacher and a student.

Stamford police Thursday arrested Stamford High School principal Donna Valentine and assistant principal Roth Nordin.

State law requires school officials to report any suspected relationship between and adult and a student.

Valentine’s attorney, Mark Sherman, says the charges are only accusations and don’t reflect the principal’s long commitment to the safety of her students.

The teacher, Danielle Watkins of Norwalk, turned herself in to police in July to face sexual assault and other charges.

Police say an 18-year-old student told police the 32-year-old teacher had provided him with drugs and sex for months and threatened to fail him if he told anyone.
